Archaeological Technician


The Archaeological Technician Certificate program requires a student to complete three 2-credit field schools or two 3-credit field schools for a total of six credits. A certificate is awarded listing the specific skills learned during the particular field school. Currently we conduct three 10-day summer field schools in Wyoming (2 credits each)

Sample Careers:

  • Archaeology field hand (also known as dig bum or shovel bum)
  • Aspiring archaeologists can benefit from earning an Archaeology Technician Certificate.
